Oz Hemp Co Founder and Owner Dave Lewis has developed a great interest in how industrial hemp could help to restore the health of people and our planet. He believes hemp offers a sustainable, biodegradable and planet-friendly alternative to harmful substances like plastics and fossil fuels.
Hemp seeds are a nutritious addition to almost any diet. They are a great source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals that are needed to support a healthy body and mind.
The naturally mild, but nutty taste makes it great to pair with just about anything. You can also use hemp seeds to make a creamy homemade hemp seed milk as featured in one of my blogs. You can also find many other recipes featuring hemp seeds throughout the website.
Hemp seeds are technically a nut and have a delicious, nutty flavour and contain more than 30% healthy fats. Including high levels of the essential fatty acids omega-6 and alpha-linolenic acid omega-3. These fatty acids are the same ones responsible for the health benefits of fish and flaxseed oils.
About 25% of calories in hemp seeds come from protein. By weight, hemp seeds provide similar amounts of protein as beef and lamb. They are considered a complete protein, which means they provide all the essential amino acids.
They are also a rich source of dietary fibre, B vitamins, and minerals manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron.
Though hemp seeds have only recently become popular in the West, they are a staple food in many societies and provide excellent nutritional value.
